Eman Askar, a 32-year-old Egyptian content creator, begins the video explaining how Christians, Muslims, and Jews used to live in this land, named Palestine when the Ottoman Empire was ruling.
Known as emmasworld.101 on the popular video-sharing app, Eman has compiled a masterful set of lyrics explaining Palestine’s history and the illegitimate Israeli occupation, garnering much acclaim for her song.
The rhythmical lines of the sea shanty video go as,
“Still, the name was Palestine
Even though it was colonized
And a promise for a Zionist state
By a man that had no right
Then more and more Jews arrived
And that’s alright
Until their plan to steal the and
Was no longer to hide….”
